SUPER A'CAN

Obscure 16 bit machine from Taiwan

 

Super A'Can and SNES comparison

Super Acan games, there are at least 11

Clockwise from the left: Son Of Evil, CUG, Speedy Dragon, Unknown Title, Boom Zoo, Sanglo Fighter

 

I know very, very little about this machine. Seems to be only one website on it. 16-bit machine released in 1995 with similar architecture to the SNES but more powerful. Uses 2 68000 CPUs (10.6 Mhz  and 6592 3.58 Mhz) and has 32768 colors. Games are not compatible with SNES, nor will it run any SNES software.

Apparently it's pretty common inside of Tiawan but pretty much unheard of anywhere else. There are only to my knowledge four systems outside of Taiwan, although there's a rumor that hundreds were brought over to the USA and cannabalized for parts.

Yet another piece of retro-super-rare-video-game-coolness that I'll problably never own. Goddammit.

Thanks to Alien Workshop from the Assembler forums for the pics.
